Note, however, that this piece comes from Ultima, and that in Ultima stalemate is also a win. And you can force stalemate with K+LL aganst bare K.

Actually, a long leaper and a king can give checkmate to a lone king, but they cannot force the enemy king into checkmate; he would have to comply.

The Ultima description claims that it can leap to any unoccupied space beyond the taken piece. More like a Cannon than a Grasshopper.
